Record-breaking Nonuplets Celebrate Their Second Birthday In Mali

Fatouma, Kadidia, Hawa, Adama, Oumou, Bah, Mohammed, Oumar, and Elhadji, the nonuplets that two years ago broke the Guinness record of the most living births at once, celebrated their birthday for the first time on Saturday in their home in Mali.

The party was attended by the nonuplets' paediatrician as well as family members and friends.

According to their mother, Hailma Cisse, the kids' favourite theme for their second birthday was "Miraculous."

Visitors were welcomed to the celebration inside the family's home by a poster with a drawing from the animated series "Miraculous" and the names of the kids, as well as ornamental tiny boxes with drawings of the various characters.

The 27-year-old Cisse expressed gratitude to God for enabling her to celebrate her children's second birthdays at home in Mali.

According to government orders, Cisse's Malian doctors decided to transfer her to a clinic in Casablanca, Morocco, where on May 5, 2021, the young mother gave birth to nine children instead of seven: five girls and four boys. This was due to the complexity and special care that this exceptional multiple pregnancy required.

The nine sisters and brothers couldn't be kept together for a family photo on Saturday; even during the cake-cutting, someone was always AWOL.

Cisse and her husband Abdel Kader Arby already had a 4-year-old daughter, and they had no idea how quickly and drastically their family would alter.

“Usually, the organisation of the birthday is for only one child, but in this case, we end up with nine children,” said Arby with a smile.

To provide food, schooling, and general child care for the nonuplets, the parents of those children get assistance from their families, the Malian government, and an NGO.
